A student poll is a type of poll or survey that aims to collect honest opinions and information from students about classroom matters, curriculum, school events, and other school-related topics. Student polls can be created by teachers, students, school administrators, and other staff. Student polls are a great way to gauge your students’ opinions about school matters.
To create your own custom student poll, open your Jotform account and click Create Form. You can either choose one of our ready-made form templates or select Start From Scratch to begin the creation process. If you choose one of our templates, you can customize it to fit your needs with our drag-and-drop poll builder. Change fonts and colors, upload images, and more.
If you want to create your poll from scratch, select Start From Scratch instead of picking a template, and choose your desired form layout — either Classic Form or Card Form depending on what type of look you want for your poll. Once you’re in the Form Builder, open the Form Elements bar on the left side of your screen. Browse the elements, and then drag and drop the ones you need into your custom poll. Some popular elements for your form include multiple-choice questions, single-choice questions, or star and scale rating questions.
After you’ve added the questions you’d like to include in your student poll, go to JotPoll. JotPoll is a useful integration that allows your poll respondents to see their poll results in a sleek chart format.
To use JotPoll, select your new form in JotPoll and click Generate URL. Copy that generated link and then return to your new poll on Jotform. Click Settings, Thank You Page, and then the button that says Redirect to an external link after submission. Insert the link that you copied from JotPoll, and you should be all set.
If you’d like to share only the results of your student poll and not the poll itself, all you have to do is share that generated link from JotPoll with your audience instead of linking to it in your Thank You page.
Student polls are a great way to increase engagement in the classroom while also sparking creativity and curiosity about course curriculum and general student body activities.
Creating fun and educational classroom polls — test or pop quiz style — can encourage active learning and foster positive interactions between students both inside and outside of the classroom.
Test your students’ knowledge with a fun poll that can double as a game! Some students might jump at the idea of taking their phones out for a class activity, and that could make the assignment more memorable for them. Or you could share with your students in real-time how the class as a whole feels about an assignment or topic.
Additionally, by creating student polls that allow respondents to remain anonymous, you as a professor or teacher will gain more honest insight into what your students are thinking. Anonymous polls encourage openness, promote healthy communication, and allow your students to freely express their opinions without being punished for them.
Using interactive activities like polls in your classroom can increase student engagement, promote a fun learning style, and help with general curriculum feedback. There’s no reason not to use polls!
There are many different types of student polls to try given the number of scenarios in which they could be used. Consider using the following types of student polls at your school:
Polls can be used for many different activities in the classroom — by both teachers and students.
Teachers can use polls in their classes for a wide variety of activities and lessons. For learning purposes, teachers can use polls to create in-class quizzes or tests that students can take on their mobile, tablet, or desktop devices.
Teachers can also use polls to plan testing days by polling their students on the best date and time to schedule a final exam or quiz. This is especially beneficial if some of your students will be missing a test to participate in an afternoon sporting or academic event.
In addition, teachers can use polls to ask their students what they like about their class and what they think could be done better. Polls are a great way to get an idea of how to change up classroom dynamics and course materials to facilitate more effective learning. Ask your students what kind of learner they are (visual, auditory, tactile, etc.) or what course material they want to review before an upcoming exam.
Teachers aren’t the only ones who benefit from using polls. Students can also use polls in the classroom. Your students can create class projects or presentations that include polls, build stronger relationships by collaborating with their peers, and more!
Teaching students how to use polls effectively also teaches them how to take initiative, lead a group activity, and build meaningful future projects. And polls are a great way for students to learn about the voting process and how it affects them and their classmates.
The types of questions that are good to ask in student polls can vary depending on the goals and theme of your poll. Here are a handful of generic questions you could ask your students, for a wide variety of poll types:
